Pensacola, Florida, USA
Pensacola is a historic beach city in northwest Florida, in the United States of America. It is located in Escambia County, Florida's westernmost county, at the tip of the "panhandle". The city is home to the Pensacola Naval Air Station, the National Museum of Naval Aviation and many historic districts that skirt the downtown area. Surrounded on three sides by water, the Pensacola area is full of history, shipwrecks, beaches and spectacular vistas.
The Blue Angels, the elite jet-fighter pilots of the U.S. Navy are stationed at NAS Pensacola for part of the year. They can be seen at the west portion of Pensacola at 8:30 AM when they practice. Typically, the Blue Angels perform two public air shows a year for Pensacola; one at the beach, and one at NAS Pensacola, and these air shows are massively attended.
